I own a cape. Have I ever mentioned that? Yeah, I know. You had no idea I was so gd fancy right?
Well, not a cape really – more of a cloak. Since my sister was married in the winter one of the other ladies in the bridal party decided instead of coats we should have cloaks and she was just the girl to do the job – we just needed to fork over the cash – about $80 bucks.
Have you ever tried to sew six satin cloaks? No? Well, I suspect there’s a reason for that and this poor girl found out the hard way.
She did a pretty good job crafting the cloaks, this girl did. Although she was cursing her decision after finishing the first one and realizing she only had five more to go. Navy blue satin on the outside, silver satin lining and a oversized hood. That’s a lot of work.
But, yeah, I am now a bona-fide cloak owner -although it’s a lot more fun to say bona-fide cape owner.
You know, superhero stuff and all.
So now I have this complete $400 wedding outfit (including shoes, skirt, top, purse) that I won’t get much use out of again (ok, maybe the black velvet top) so in order to get more bang out of my buck, I have devised the following plan.
I could either try getting work on the David Copperfield Magic Tour or more honestly - I think I am going to see if I can score a BeDazzler on the cheap somewhere.
That way I can bedazzle some super-cool slogan on the back of my cloak in blazing rhinestones!
Ha-ha! Jealous, much?
Some possible things to be “Bedazzled” on my cloak:
Yep. That about covers it.
I mean really, what else could you possibly want to bedazzle in tacky fake gem stones on your very own satin cape?
And it’s only appropriate considering the only proper occasion to wear it again would be running around the apartment naked save for the satin cape and a smile.
I mean, a few rounds of that alone should make it worth the cash, right?
Unrelated, it seems every diary I visit mentions the wacked out Google hits you all are getting so here’s my obligatory wacky Google hit mention:
Superfly Colonel Sanders.
That proves it - my work at diaryland is almost done!
Oh sure, there were others, but after that someone trolling the ‘net for pornoshoes and boring old hot bi action seems a little insignificant, now doesn’t it?
p.s. super-cool idea of the month! The 2001 Blue Sphere Holiday Blitz! check it out, won’t you?
